Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Dollar spot is one of the most destructive globally distributed diseases of turfgrass. The identity of the fungus responsible for the disease has been the subject of debate for more than 75 years. These datasets provide the phylogenetic evidence from three nucleotide sequence markers (CaM, ITS and Mcm7) that underlie the establishment of the new fungal genus Clarireedia, which includes four species that cause turfgrass dollar spot disease: Clarireedia homoeocarpa, C. bennettii, C. jacksonii, and C. monteithiana. Datasets include the DNA sequence alignments for the CaM, ITS and Mcm7 markers for exemplar Clarireedia isolates, and the complete combined phylogenetic dataset and phylogenetic tree file.
